* Study conducted by Dave Siever.
# Study done by internship students from the University of Alberta. These students are hired by
Mind Alive Inc., but the study design and the Independent Review Board (IRB) is under control
of the respective university professors and staff. Mind Alive Inc does not engage in the study or
know the results until the study is completed.
All other studies are completely independent from influence of Dave Siever or Mind Alive Inc.
